EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon
I am running the Boston Marathon this year! Please help me achieve my goal of raising $6,000 to support the hard work of Mass Eye and Ear. Running a marathon is a challenge that I have set for myself, and it makes me think about the day to day challenges of people for whom every day living is a marathon.
As this is the 116th running of the Boston Marathon, I'm asking that people show their support for me by donating $116. Any amount you can give will be sincerely appreciated. Remember, in addition to supporting my marathon dream, together, we can help the lives of people who suffer every day from serious conditions that affect their basic senses (hearing and sight), as well as people who suffer from throat cancer.
Since 2006, Mass. Eye and Ear's marathon team, Team Eye and Ear, has raised over $1.4 million for research and patient care at Mass. Eye and Ear. in 2012, we aim to raise more than $350,000. Team Eye and Ear members bring new hope and a healthier future to people everywhere who suffer from debilitating conditions affecting sight, hearing, voice, balance, taste and smell and cancers of the eye, head and neck.
If you have any questions, or would rather send in a check, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
See you at the Finish line!

At Mass. Eye and Ear, our focus is your quality of life. We treat everything that has to do with the eyes, ears, nose, throat, head and neck - so that you and those you care about can get more out of the world around us.
Our physicians are more than just specialists; each is also a researcher and a teacher. These doctors don't just apply the latest advances in medicine; they invent them. Together with Mass. Eye and Ear scientists, they work tirelessly to understand the root causes of diseases that both take people's lives and rob too many others of their quality of life.
Every dollar raised makes it possible for Mass. Eye and Ear to excel in clinical care, research and medical education. That, in turn, allows us to provide the finest specialty care to every person who comes through our door and to share our knowledge in order to help patients around the world.
Thank you for your support.
